president obama, my name is julia. i'm an 11-year-old who lives here in d.c. there are no words to explain how sad i am about the school shooting. even though i'm not scared for my safety, i'm scared for others. i have four brothers and sisters and i know i would not be able to bear the thought of losing any of them. i may not be that into politics, but my opinion is it should be very hard for people to buy guns. the only thing they do is harm or kill and guns should only be in the most horrible event, where others will get hurt if they are not. i know that laws have to be passed by congress, but i beg you to try very hard to make guns not allowed, not just for me, but the whole united states. my love and regrets, julia. >> that's a very thoughtful letter, julia. why did you decide to sit down and write it? >> well, i was overwhelmed with sadness about the school shooting and knew as one person i couldn't do anything, but i knew that president obama could. so i decided to write this letter hoping that at least he would read it and think of doing something. >> theo, you're the dad. did you

. >> didn't we do this for the last two years? the election is over. the whole barack obama is part of this elitists is a dead argument. it doesn't move things forward. what the nra should be talking about is let's make sure people have to be licensed properly to have their guns. make sure people know how to use a gun if someone comes into their home. these ads and attacks raises money, gets people talking, and it doesn't help the nra's reputation with the public. >> ron, jason has a point. this could create a backlash. a "washington post" poll shows 44% have an unfavorable view of the nra's leadership. >> i don't think that matters to the nra. what their goal is is to protect gun rights, the rights of the second amendment. they're going to do everything possible to make sure that happens. you know, you have republicans and democrats joining together. that will end up joining together to fight president obama's proposals. you have red state senators in the senate, harry reid extremely cool to this proposal as well as pat leahy, a democrat who will take his time and look this over. i

know that there is anywhere near true. >> i think barack obama agreed with me, the debt ceiling is there for a reason. it forces us to have this discussion. if we didn't have it, we would blow through it like we did for many years. yes, we're doing it differently now. we're talking about the debt ceiling in term of ways to have a discussion and reduce spending. is that different than it has been over the last 30 years? yes, but thankfully so. maybe if we had these discussions for the last 30 years we wouldn't be looking at $6 trillion in debt. we've done it to ourselves but this is the future and perhaps rightly so until we get things straightened out. >> we'll keep a close eye. thanks for coming to the camera. >> thanks for having me. >> still, the cost of america's crumbling of infrastructure. we're back in a moment. >> announcer: this cnbc program is sponsored by audi, truth in engineering.
